In Scene Report, musicians from all over the globe fill us in on what’s going on sonically in their hometowns. This week, Tyler Ludwick of Princess Music gives us the scoop on Denver, CO. The band’s debut album, Odobenidae, will be released on September 3 via Hot Congress Records.

Oklahoma City [Ludwick's hometown] has, in some ways, constructed a self-made reputation as a place beleaguered by pop culture. Being plopped delicately in the middle of the country does not fare well in the way of “trends.” As for Denver, there also seems to be very little that is notable occurring in the way of “trends” here as well. There are some bands in Denver that I think are really far out though!
